Chad Daybell, 54, is suspected of killing his first wife Tamara “Tammy” Douglas Daybell, and his second wife Lori Vallow Daybell’s children.
Skye Borgman, director of Netflix’s Abducted in Plain Sight and The Girl in the Picture, has created a new series called “Sins of Our Mother,” which delves deeply into the murders of Tylee Ryan and J.J. Vallow, who went missing in September 2019 and were found dead in June 2020. Borgman directed both of these documentaries for Netflix.
Colby Ryan confronts his mother, Lori Vallow Daybell, about the deaths of her children, J.J. Vallow and Tylee Ryan, in the most current installment of the documentary series “Sins of Our Mother,” which is available on Netflix. Chad Daybell is also connected to the investigation, despite the fact that the show primarily centers on Vallow Daybell and his family. In the next paragraphs, I’m going to talk about Chad Daybell.
Who Is Chad Daybell?
Chad Daybell, also known as Chad Guy Daybell, is facing first-degree murder charges in connection with the deaths of his first wife, Tamara “Tammy” Douglas Daybell, and the children he had with his second wife, Lori Vallow Daybell. In the meantime, he insists he’s innocent.
On June 9, 2020, the skeletal remains of the youngsters, identified as Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow, were discovered on his farm. He was taken to jail on that day and initially charged with “conspiracy to commit murder” in connection with the deaths of the children.
Charges of first-degree murder were added subsequently, after he was already in custody, in relation to the deaths of the children.
When they were killed, Tylee was 17 years old and JJ was only 7 years old. Alex Cox, who is Vallow Daybell’s brother, was with Tylee the day before he went to the property where Vallow Daybell’s remains were located. Tylee had been in Yellowstone the day before.
Daybell was born in Provo, Utah, but spent much of his childhood in Springville. He attended Brigham Young University for his undergraduate education and majored in communication.
Chad Daybell was originally from Rexburg, Idaho, and worked as a professional cemetery sexton before transitioning into a career as a novelist and podcaster.
What Happened To Him?
The apocalypse, sometimes known as the end of the world, was a significant theme in the religious writings that Chad created. Because he believed he could communicate with the dead and see into the future, others referred to his religious beliefs as “crazy.”
Chad also held the belief that there were people living on Earth whose souls had been separated from their bodies, and that the only way their spirits could be returned to paradise was for their bodies to be murdered.
Chad and Lori’s first encounter was at a spiritual conference in Utah, and they didn’t wait long after that to start a connection with one another. During the course of that same year, they collaborated on a podcast.
It wasn’t long before Lori acquired a “cult-like devotion” to him. Once Lori began to spend more time with Chad, she divulged to her friends and family that God had appointed her to fulfill a vocation as a result of their relationship.
According to the information provided in the documentary, Chad is suspected of playing a role in the murders of his wife, Tammy Daybell, as well as Lori’s children, Tylee Ryan, who was 16 years old, and JJ Vallow, who was 7 years old. The dead remains of the children were discovered on the land of Chad’s home in Idaho.
Where Is Chad Daybell Now?
In the state of Idaho, Chad Daybell is now being held in jail until his trial for the first-degree murders of Tylee Ryan, age 16, J.J. Vallow, age 7, and his ex-wife, Tammy. Daybell is still being held within the Fremont County Prison.
In June 2020, Daybell was taken into custody. After his arrest, the judge decided that he should be released on bond in the amount of one million dollars, with the stipulation that he must remain in the immediate region and wear an ankle monitor.
Following the discovery of human remains on Daybell’s farm, he was arrested and brought into the Fremont County Prison.
The trial of Daybell and Lori Vallow will take place concurrently in 2023. The prosecution is working hard to ensure that the defendants face the possibility of the death penalty if they are found guilty.
